Here at Ak-O-Mak, every day's a great day! And today was no exception!
Today's morning classes included; baseball, road cycling, fencing, triathlon transitions, and fencing!
The campers and counselors also all had a special self-defense course with another black belt and member of Rosie's martial arts school – Ashlynn. The girls were taught very quick and practical methods for defending and standing up for themselves. They were taught to be assertive, and that they shouldn't be afraid to say, "NO". They also watched a demonstration between 4th degree black belt, Rosie, and second degree black belt, Ashlynn. It was very impressive and certainly made a mark on the girls – both campers and counselors.
And of course they had swimming! Yay!
This afternoon we had a mountain biking race at camp on the aptly named, Fun Cross! Every camper participated riding up and down hills, zig zagging through the woods and back onto camp where the rest of camp was waiting, ringing cowbells ringing and cheering loudly. When all of the heats had completed the race everyone went down to the bike shed to inspect their bike for tomorrows triathlon. They made sure their tires were pumped and their seats were just right, and most importantly they put their name on it and packed it into the truck. After dinner was open waterfront. A refreshing cool down before an early bedtime.
